David  Shrigley

Shrigley is one of the most prominent British contemporary artists and is best known for his mordantly humorous cartoons released in softcover books or postcard packs. He finds humour in flat depictions of the inconsequential, the unavailing, and the bizarre, although he is far fonder of violent or otherwise disquieting subject matter. His work has been exhibited in some of the world’s most important museums and art galleries. In 2013, Shrigley was nominated for the Turner Prize – a prestigious award for contemporary art.
